Sammy Miller and The Congregation
Sammy Miller and The Congregation
A native of Los Angeles, Grammy® nominated drummer Sammy Miller has become known for his unique maturity and relentless focus on making music that feels good as a drummer, singer and bandleader. Upon completing his Master’s at The Juilliard School, Sammy formed his ensemble, The Congregation. As a band, they are focused on sharing the power of community through their music—joyful jazz. While independently the band members have performed and recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, Iron and Wine, and Rhiannon Giddens at venues including the White House, Lincoln Center and the Hollywood Bowl, they have opted to stick together to spread joy throughout the world.

Ars Nova selected The Congregation for the ‘Makers Lab’ in 2017 to produce their original theater jazz show, Great Awakening — the tale of a jazz band that is banned from jazz and so they must rebrand as a theatre troupe to save their careers. They will be performing excerpts from the production at Largo.
